The Clearaudio Innovation Compact

Ticket to the top of the world

The Innovation Compact turntable with its very efficient design is nothing less than an audiophile revelation. Thanks to optical speed control (OSC), speed stability values are obtained that lift this turntable into the global high end class.

Perfectly matched materials meet patented Clearaudio technology. The 70mm-thick platter of the Innovation Compact consists of dynamically balanced polyoxymethylene (POM) and is powered by a high-torque DC motor with precision bearings, developed exclusively for Clearaudio.

The optimally designed chassis keeps resonances out of the audible range and guarantees maximum stability in a housing made of a massive panzerholz (bulletproof wood) and aluminium sandwich. Timeless design with quality built to last for decades. To enhance flexibility the Innovation Compact has the option to mount a second tone arm, making it possible to play a rich variety of music from across the decades.

 A Selection of Clearaudio tonearms and cartridges are available, at extra cost, to suit this turntable.
